About this issue:

The coronavirus has overtaken our lives in a matter of weeks and transformed our world, presenting an unprecedented medical, economic, human and spiritual challenge. It turns out that when everything falls apart, we do too — at least a little. And that's OK. We worship a God who remains busy working to put all things, including us, back together. This issue of the Gleaner addresses our current global crisis and the role we can play in this important time of need.
